Girl Scouts have a powerful legacy of civic action in America. We’re challenge seekers looking for ways to break barriers. With the support of positive adults and sister Girl Scouts, girls develop the skills and courage they need to stand up and speak out on issues that matter to them. Girl Scouts take the lead to advance the G.I.R.L. Agenda, a nonpartisan initiative to inspire, prepare, and mobilize girls, and those who care about them, to lead positive change through civic action.
Girl Scouts advocate for issues they care about and make the world a better place by:
- Leading projects that address the root cause of systemic issues facing communities for their Bronze, Silver, and Gold Awards
- Participate in parades and marches
- Standing up against everyday injustices
- Earning citizenship badges and participating in citizenship events that help build her knowledge of local and global communities and show how her actions make the world better for everyone
- Meeting female leaders and role models who help girls see what’s possible and overcome challenges they may face
And, making their voices heard at the Minnesota State Capitol. In 2017, over 200 girl advocates attended Girl Scout Day at the Capitol. Girls received training and met with over 45 legislators to advocate for issues that matter to them.
